Dream trip: Backpacking through South America
I think every country in the world has something unique to offer! However, Spain is special to me because I spent a few months living there with a host family and got to experience real Spanish life. I took Spanish language courses, and my family took me to birthdays, Baptisms and local festivals, showing me how the Spanish really live."

One of the best meals I had was in Greece. Every single meal in those 3 weeks was absolutely incredible, from the fresh Greek salads to the creamy Greek yogurt with honey. One that stands out was at a tiny, family owned restaurant in Santorini (the husband cooked and the wife served). We ordered white wine, a fava bean deep and saganaki to start, grilled lamb that came with pita bread and tzatziki and then they brought us a homemade Greek dessert at the end of the meal. It was unforgettable.
To be open-minded! The most amazing experiences often happen spontaneously when you meet people and explore new cities that if you’re stuck in a pre-determined plan or itinerary, you’ll miss out! Being open allows you to meet incredible people and make memories you’ll never forget.
